Taste of Helsinki is an event of senses taking place at a rather new and cool outdoor playground in Helsinki city center called Kansalaistori. It is the culinary event of the year in Helsinki bringing together top end restaurants of Helsinki and also other cities in Finland. Taste of Helsinki website states it is a Gourmet Festival providing guests with a unique culinary experience – picnic with a difference.

Helsinki has been honored to have the event for couple of years now. Finnish-Irish couple brought the concept to Helsinki and fought their way to make it happen. Besides eating there’s also different wines and beers to go with the food as well as wine and champagne tastings. You will definitely get a good overall glimpse of what is the culinary state of Helsinki and Finland.

Taste of Helsinki is a great chance to try out in a relaxed atmosphere what kind of food these top restaurants offer. One of the best things is you can mix dishes from different restaurants. The dishes are tasting size but we think three or four are enough for a meal. Stereotypically the top restaurants have not been very welcoming to a regular Finn with white table cloths, personal service and not forgetting the price. Taste of Helsinki is an opportunity to eat out in a top quality restaurant wearing your bulletproof 80s wind breaker and paying only 16 euros for a three course tasting menu.

Electrolux Taste Theatre

If eating is not enough you might as well take a step further on the other side of the counter and roll up your sleeves in Electrolux Taste Theatre. Electrolux will be setting up a full show kitchen for some cooking entertainment. Taste theatre provides an opportunity to cook with top chefs from the Finnish Culinary Team. There will also be local top chefs demonstrating some cooking action and sharing tips with the audience. A great chance to see from a close distance how top chefs perform.
